Re: Yesterday...

Corrected that for you... JPJ can't help but wonder if you are working with a damaged set of clubs or malfunctioning body... According to my app, my best with the 3W is 230yds (that would have been downhill), with only a couple of other instances of >200yds. My average is 163yds. Most of my clubs* a...

Re: Yesterday...

Have you been fitted? You could have the wrong shaft or head or both for your driver and fairways. Well, that wasn't a response I was expecting... No, I haven't. Mainly because I can't afford new clubs anyway, but also because my swing/ball-striking is SO inconsistent that I just don't see the poin...

Yesterday...

...I sucked at golf. I was finding our new club home difficult enough during the winter, but now we're off the temporary tees it's just impossible for me. Take the par 5 12th: It was 110yds to the fairway (375yds to the green). Now it's 225yds (485yds to the green)! 220yds is right at the far end of...

Re: The Early Call

The only early calls I don't like are from baseball players. Such as when they assume their long fly is a home run and they start trotting as they admire it, instead of busting out just in case it's only got warning track distance to guarantee they at least get second base, or when the defence assum...

Re: About the (right) elbow

I think you are spot on. About which bit? Are you lacking distance, and tired of hitting 5i into greens where others are hitting short iron/wedge? Yep, exactly that. After the last round I played one of the players complimented me on my putting, and general play, but said something along the lines ...

About the (right) elbow

(Right elbow for the right-hander) In recent rounds I've been taking to heart Mr Hogan's advice of imagining my elbows are bound to my sides. The positive result of this is better accuracy, reflected in improved/consistent stableford scores. Still a few too many blobs to threaten the top of the lead...

Re: So, my golf course is gone

That's a damn shame. So, they're just letting it turn into a park or are they selling it off to a developer? Publicly, their stance is that they're regenerating the park. The course itself is within a big park, taking up about 1/3 of the total size. Apparently the other 160-180 acres aren't enough ...
